Obama: I Am 'Absolutely' The Underdog In 2012 (VIDEO)By Jennifer Bendery
WASHINGTON -- President Barack Obama said he considers himself the underdog in the 2012 presidential election. And he has no problem with that.
In a Monday interview with ABC's George Stephanopoulos, Obama said he is "absolutely" the underdog in his upcoming race, due in large part to the dismal economy playing out on his watch. His comment came in response to Stephanopoulos indicating that a new ABC poll coming out later Monday found that 55 percent of Americans think Obama will be a one-term president.
"I don't mind," Obama said of the poll's results. "I'm used to being an underdog."
